I'm looking to get a boot in polo suede before the price increase goes into effect next month. Would like to keep on the Forest last with some type of non-rubber sole. Have 3 people interested so far.

Would anyone be interested in something like this design -




In this color -

Shoes went up ~$10 USD and boots ~$40 USD on 8/17, but I believe on Sept 1 there will be a much bigger increase. For US customers shoes are expected to go to $450-$500 USD range. A similar price increase for boots would mean ~$600+ USD.

That's why lots of people are scrambling to get Carmina GMTOs organized before the big increase in Sept.

Ok just 1 more hopfeully then! @sarteaga are you still on the fence??

@TtownMD do you guys mind if the boot has plain captoe? I personally think it looks cleaner than a punch captoe, especially in the balmoral style but I'm open to whatever the group prefers

By any chance can you post pic of whatever you are trying to do so we all have clear picture. If you don't mind please.

I am still on the fence to be honest. What will be the MTO price and if it's through soak, if they can do a 25% deposit vs 50% then maybe. I have a current GMTO with them so my shoe budget is tied up a bit.

I haven't contacted anyone yet to organize since we don't have requisite 6 yet, but I believe through Skoak it would be 4600 SEK (3680 SEK w/o VAT) and through the Carmina site ~400 Euros w/o VAT. I think all the recent GMTOs through Skoak are have been 50% deposit upfront though and through Carmina I believe its 100%
